Sefton Park Gardens

Liverpool

This is a fascinatingly varied group of Liverpool gardens. In That Bloomin' Green Triangle, Architecture group Assemble won the Turner Prize 2015 for their work with the four streets. It was the guerrilla gardening of local residents which led to the area's regeneration. See long colour themed borders and rare plants in the garden and for sale at Parkmount, plus the delightful small garden in Croxteth Grove. Vegetables and flowers abound in the ninety allotments, which include a children's and disabled plots. Two local gardening projects to see: Fern Grove Community garden has children's activities and a beekeeping demonstration, and a Community Orchard is under development in the former Quaker Burial Ground in Arundel Avenue. Wheelchair access WC at Sefton Park Allotments.

    It will be high summer when Sefton Park Gardens open their gates this year, giving visitors the chance to see the gardens as they progress through the season. In Ullet Road the large garden of one of Liverpool's merchant houses overlooking Sefton Park is an inspiration in adventurous planting. Here gardener Jeremy Nicholls uses vibrant colours and rare plants in stunning combinations. There'll be Pimms on the lawn and delicious cakes.
    Nearly a hundred allotments on a six acre site in Sefton Park show how city plots can provide fruit and vegetables of the highest quality, offering inspiration to other city gardeners. The site features a plot for disabled gardeners, and a Children's Allotment. Get a glimpse of the early days of the Community Orchard in Arundel Avenue - a haven of peace hidden behind high walls. And residents are making good progress at the community garden in Fern Grove, where a new poly tunnel has been established with the help of an NGS grant. They will have a beekeeping demonstration at 2 pm.
